94% of Blathering on threads end up talking about...
A. Chocolate
B. Dogs
C. Scottish people.

5% are about stuff like Mike's Toastmaster club or how none of us women are happy about our bodies and about us all being sick and injured.
1% is about Michael Palin.
It's TRUE!!

0.001% of people on Blathering threads work out the percentage of subjects talked about.


P.S. Personally I NEVER talk about chocolate, dogs OR Scottish people!! AS IF!!!

At one time, we spoke of Michael, his series's, books and MPFC a lot! That was back in the early days of the site, even in 'Blathering On'. I've noticed we have veered off drastically . And we hardly use the other threads in comparison.
Re: Statistics by kazzzz on 11 March 2009 1:06pm
75% of posts thus far in this thread mention chocolate:)

So, Kazzzie, are you going to drop the Creme Eggs references, eh....? :)
Re: Statistics by bIG bLOGGER on 11 March 2009 4:54pm
I agree with kazzzz's perceptive observation/analysis that Palins Travels has not half enough about Michael Palin, but far too much dribbling on about : creme eggs,tractors,purple Prince,snakes and ladders,soppy pets,weird phobias,and suchlike...

Folks coming to this site new and afresh and reading some of the posts will be justifiably flabbergasted. --lol.

BB you've got me all wrong here, I wasn't criticising the posts. Far from it, I LOVE 'em!
Re: Statistics by bIG bLOGGER on 12 March 2009 3:00pm
Okay,kazzzz,sorry...my fault.
But does that therefore mean you APPROVE of 94% of the palins post comment being about chocolate (including creme eggs),dogs and Scottish people?

(*thinks,mmm,weird priorities!*)

Mind you,only 5% to do with our Mike's Toastmaster? ...that could surely be increased to 10%!! After all,knowing how to make good toast is very important for getting a good start to the day. lol
